Simple Green Smoothie to start the morning with a healthy energizing breakfast.
Take about 60% fruits (bananas, strawberries, peaches,etc) and 40% greens (kale, spinach, collard, chard, wild edibles, etc) and water. Put all in the blender and blend until smooth. You can add more fruits to make it sweeter.
This one is made with wild dandelion leaves, root, and flower (from the farmer’s market) and bananas and water. The kids love them!

I am learning more about GMO foods, it’s disguise, and it’s growing advocacy against it. I know for sure that I do not want to feed my family or myself any products that contains Genetically Modified Organisms. But how do we know if we are avoiding it? That’s why it is essential that products that contain GMOs should be properly labeled. We have the right to be informed.
I turned down down a vendor the other day who wanted to sell her Soy candle product (which is technically more eco-friendly than the regular petroleum base paraffins). I asked her if she knows if her soy wax is GMO free? and her answer was, “I don’t know”. She called the company while she was at our store. They told her that the soy is from the U.S. so therefore they are made from genetically modified soy plants. I am proud to have posed the question and to have turned down the products.
It’s unfortunate that many of the so called “bio-degradable”/”eco” plastics are made from genetically modified soy, corn, and wheat. All though it’s somewhat better than the petroleum base products, it is still supporting the GMO industry. That means we just got to Step our game up and truly be a conscious consumer.
